dc.description.abstract This study provides a workload-based staffing model for police patrol in B Detachment of the Alaska State Troopers and describes the pattern of police incidents in B Detachment over the study period of 2009 to 2015. Alaska State Troopers provide service in unincorporated areas of the state. B Detachment, headquartered in Palmer with additional posts in Wasilla and Glennallen, serves a large part of the Matanuska-Susitna Borough and portions of the Valdez-Cordova Census Area along the Richardson Highway, — an area of about 20,000 square miles containing 2,250 miles of roadways. According to the study, Troopers in B Detachment are chronically over-utilized, which causes operational problems. From 2009 to 2015, Alaska State Troopers and Alaska Wildlife Troopers in B Detachment responded to an average of 48,000 incidents per year. en_US
